Why do I picture Bryce doing a spit-take when hearing this news? *snicker*

Bryce usually sounds pretty hokey in dubs. Not bad, but hokey.

He sounds pretty good here though, so maybe my opinion of him will improve.

Everyone else sounds great.

Just from the clip, I think I like Bryce as Eren. Wasn't expecting him, either. All in all, the only one I think I'll need to warm up to is Mikasa.

Of course, we've only seen snippets; the performances might be even stronger when taken as a whole.

Seems like a good choice. I can see him doing well voicing Eren, and now I can see why they were building up the lead voice announcement, as it's someone outside of their normal circle and TX pool.

I guess it's official: Bryce Papenbrook is the new go-to guy for lead roles. This should be interesting with the increase in cross-regional castings…

That gets a "meh" from me. Not bad, could have been better. If he'd just gone a little less whiny/more angry with it, it probably would have been great.

Well Bryce was particularly awesome as Rin in Blue Exorcist so i can dig it. Looking forward to this quite a bit and with the UK release date announced it won't be long before i can get mah hands on it.

Definitely wasn't expecting it, but the way they were hyping it I was expecting some TV celebrity, not just another anime VA. No offense to Papenbrook, I like the guy alright, I'm lookin forward to it Smile

I do really hope this will push other studios like BZ,NYAV and Studiopolis to continue the trend. Technology and Freelancing played a huge role in this and we should give Funi credit for giving anyone and anywhere to dub their series.

I cannot wait to buy this series and future titles down the road with awesome voice casting like this.

So, the cast is complete with Mr. Papenbrook. Who knew that Eren in English could sound that philosophical. Now that I have seen all the dub clips, I think it sounds weird despite having a good cast.

I am going to watch Attack on Titan dubbed, and I hope the finished product sounds better than the clips.

just watched the pv now and my opinion is....

I think I just need a bit of time to get used to Eren's new voice (like what happened with Armin and Levi), but it's not horrible!

in any case, I'll be watching the dub for sure

now the only question that remains is: who will voice Nanaba

So they brought in the younger Greg Ayres for this one? Sad. Bryce has been the lead in at least 2 "major" titles that I've seen and he sounds identical to those in this one. Wasn't that the reason that "the internet" didn't want Vic? Vic admits that he isn't that savvy at disguising his voice but neither can Bryce (apparently) and Vic doesn't sound hokey like Bryce.

I'm honestly wondering why Funimation didn't just farm this one out to Bang/Zoom. It has several Bang/Zoom actors and it sounds like a Bang/Zoom dub. TBH, I can think of several Bang/Zoom dubs that I'd rank as superior. That realization shocks me to my very core.
